The Liminal Hour
Artists: Erth Visual & Physical Inc, Jacob Nash, James Brown and Mandylights
The Liminal Hour transforms Barangaroo’s Wulugul Walk into a magical bushland every night of the festival led by the beautiful female creature named Marri Dyin – meaning “Great Woman” in the Eora language.
Marri Dyin calls upon the natural forces, transforming peaceful bushland, into a raging bush fire, then a torrential storm - a cycle of regeneration which assures new life and prosperity for future generations. While the storm calms, Marri Dyin then sits to share a moment with children.
Marri Dyin is not a traditional spirit, rather she is a contemporary concept. Her existence seeks to recognise the influence and importance of the First Nations women, including Barangaroo, who lived in Sydney prior to settlement. Marri Dyin represents their strength and spirit, and their role as providers for their people through a connection to the land and its waterways.
